Upcoming Poet -in -Residence Events

THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2015: POWER SURGE

How do you plug back into your power when you’re running low? Some days you might need a burst of brightness, an infusion of support, an elixir of motivation. Take an hour and get sparked by the poetry, actions and ideas of others as well as your own through writing and engaging with words and people, plug in.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2015: BOWL OF WORDS

Let yourself be guided by writing stories, poems, lists, letters and random details of your lives. The workshop offers a few simple exercises to connect with yourselves, and each other, while generating playful unassuming pieces of writing.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2015: SPONTANEOUS POETRY BOOTH

This time of year, we think about giving. Join Ronna Bloom, Mount Sinai’s Poet-in- Residence, at the Spontaneous Poetry Booth. Drop by between 12 noon and 1:30 p.m. where Ronna will write you a poem on any subject you choose. This event is open to patients, visitors, staff, students and volunteers.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2016: SCARS, X RAYS, TATTOOS AND OTHER STORIES OF THE BODY

Each one of us brings a different lens to the person: the word ‘tattoo’ means something different to the radiologist than what it means to the dermatologist. The surgeon sees scars while the psychiatrist sees scars of a different sort. In this workshop we will use poetry and creative writing to express the unique way we each see the patient, and then come together as a team to see the patient again through all the lenses we bring.

All are Welcome! No experience necessary.
